School Closures

Bad weather / Academy closure information and protocol

Emergency School Closure Procedure

In the event of incidents such as adverse weather or power failure, every attempt will be made to keep the Academy open in order to minimise disruption to teaching & learning. However, the prime objective will be the health and safety of students and staff. Under such circumstances, we will carry out a risk assessment, taking account of the conditions on site, to ascertain if it is safe to keep the Academy open.

Should the decision be taken to close the academy due to severe weather conditions, parents for whom we have a valid mobile telephone number will receive a text informing them the Academy is closed. This will also be displayed on our website and Facebook page.
